A few card projects...

I just can't seem to stay away from the February Stamp of the Month!

At our Happy Hour workshop we used the set for 2 of the projects! (HURRY! If you haven't ordered the set, you have until the 28th! Order online at

We used the Caboodle paper pack and colors! We distressed the Heavenly Blue Textured Cardstock with sandpaper and the Edge Distresser.

We tried a new technique...Paper Pleating! It was fun! (Right?) See instructions below.

Paper Pleating Instructions:

Start with a 2 x 12 strip of paper (you can use a 1 ½ strip of paper if you choose)

Score at 1, 1 ½, 2 ½, 3, 4, 4 ½, 5 ½, 6, 7, 7 ½, 8 ½, 9, 10, 10 ½, 11 ½

Fold score lines Mountain (up like a mountain), mountain, Valley ( down like a valley), valley…until you reach the end of the strip.

Open back up…place a strip of adhesive along the entire TOP…fold as you did previously making cute little pleats! Adhere to card.

If you would like to do this on a scrapbook pages or larger card, do the same process but glue the 2 strips together after scoring and folding.
